Nellie’s is a Registered Charitable Organization operating in Canada. We are legally registered as Women’s Hostels Incorporated, Operating As: Nellie’s Women’s Shelter. Our Charitable Registration Number is 11930 2727 RR0001. This can be verified on the Canada Revenue Agency website by doing a search in their Charities and Giving area.

We receive government funding from the following sources:

We are a proud member agency of the United Way of Greater Toronto.

Without the private support of individuals and organizations we would not be able to offer essential supports and services to the vulnerable women and children who come to us for help. Each year, over 25% of our operating budget, more than $350,000, is raised through donor support and fundraising efforts. Click here to see how you can help.
